82mm will give you around 10# of boost,Justin will tell you anything smaller and you could have issues or a upgraded fuel pump. I'm a 2013 boss and have trouble with traction,even at 80mph it hits it's power band and spins tires. God choice in supercharger. Maintainance free.

Very expensive aftermarket fuel system, compression is to high for much more boost or very expensive race gas

Mine is a daily driver, 82 mm is safe with a good tune

I ran a 79mm, ID1300s and E85 with a boost a pump. Car made a little over 650rwhp stock motor and manual trans. Ran a couple mid 10s before I sold it.

If the motor is well-tuned on 85 mm, you should have plenty of power to do 10s...assuming you can put that power to the track properly.

Hell, I did 11s on a tune and tire so, this is eminently possible with what you've already got going on and the biggest pulley.

OEM Roush cars are slow at the dragstrip, factory set up, because of their road-race oriented suspension and ****ty factory tune. You can easily cure both of these faults with careful choices.

I confess, I have a VMP setup. However, I decided not to have Justin tune it. I was not impressed with the interaction and I seemed to be more of a bother.
Overall, I think Justin is talented and the kit is solid; however, I had a much better experience from a local tuner.
82mm pulley on a 91 octane tune, BTW.

What kinda bug me is the tune that used to be included in an already expensive Stage one kit is now an extra cost option and VMP diddles you for shipping too. The quality is there but, the little things add up to a lot more than you expect and make you feel you're being taken advantage of. I bought my X4 from them and I got exactly what I asked for, 87, 91 and 93 tunes, even though the 87 isn't part of the normal package so, pleased with that but it was 50 bucks more than say, Steeda, offering a quality product as well... and I think I paid for shipping too.

To be more specific with my issue with Justin is it took a month of back and forth of data logging. To be fair, this is my first vehicle and some things I was not doing right. This was a result of my ignorance as well as there was something mechanically wrong. I am not going to push the car during WOT when I KNOW something is wrong, so I sent data as it was. It was not good enough for Justin, so I opted for a dyno session for a controlled environment. That still was not good enough until Justin sent me a tune to lock it in 4th gear (I have an auto).
After that, he reviewed the data and stated that 1) spark plug blow out was the reason for loss of power at 6200 RPM, and 2) running out of fuel.

I specifically asked where in the data does it show that, so that I can have the same discussion with my local tuner. I received no answer. I asked again about a week later and still no answer.

As a customer who spent $6500 on his kit, I believe I am entitled to a better explanation than that. Sure, anything mechanical is not the fault of his kit or tune, but I need better direction than "I looked at the data and this is what it is" with no deeper explanation. There were only so many PIDs being monitored. I am asking him detailed questions, so that I can educate myself on the proper questions to ask him or someone else.

At the end of the day, my local tuner came to the same conclusion as Justin, so that is why I think Justin is talented, but the nonchalant attitude (one sentence replies to my details with graphs and explanations), no explanation of his conclusion has strayed me away from using VMP over email.

I suspect that my experience would have been better if I was local to VMP.

I will still purchase upgrades from VMP, but I will use my local tuner. My local tuner takes his time, explains things to me, and is able to tune equal to if not better than VMP.
